Gingery Miso Tahini Spread

Recipe Image

Delicious and very easy to prepare. If you like a milder, and less salty taste, try mellow white or yellow miso instead of red. The tahini can be replaced with roasted soy nut butter if you want a double dose of soy.

Preparation facts

Yield: 6 servings


2 Tbs (30g) red miso

3 Tbs (45g) toasted sesame tahini or soy nut butter

1 Tbs (15mL) water or stock

A squirt of fresh lemon juice optional

1/4 tsp (0.5g) ground ginger or 1/2 tsp (3mL) fresh ginger

Juice from grated ginger root

1 clove garlic, pressed

1 Tbs (10g) slivered scallion greens or chives


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.

Spread on artisan bread, such as sweet potato bread, and serve with soup.

Note: Keeps, covered, in the refrigerator 1 to 2 weeks.
